Today we close out photography week with the work of Jim Ross who describes his photo below. 



The yellow and black swallowtails come out in numbers by August but it’s rare to catch two face to face. Last summer, their numbers were sharply down and I’m hoping their numbers rebound this summer. The park where I walk daily and watch for their return is an official monarch way station and features milkweed and other bushes attractive to the dwindling monarch population.
